Herblore training ranges from cleaning herbs to making potions which can only begin after completing the Druidic Ritual quest granting the player level 3 Herblore. To make a potion, the player will have to gather the required ingredients, usually a herb of some sort along with a secondary ingredient, and use them on a vial of water.

Training Herblore efficiently can be very expensive, as most potions are cheaper than the ingredients required to make them. Players can mitigate the costs somewhat by making unfinished potions themselves, but it is faster to buy unfinished potions from the Grand Exchange. For information about the cost per experience, see Calculator:Herblore/Potions.

A profitable, although a slow, very click-intensive and tedious method to train Herblore is to clean grimy herbs.

Other methodsEdit

Herb cleaningEdit

Cleaning grimy herbs is a slow and tedious method of training Herblore, but it often results in a profit. To find out if money will be lost or gained, look at the cost of the grimy herb and compare it to the cost of the clean herb.

Overall, if you are willing to commit the time, cleaning herbs is a much more cost-efficient method to gain Herblore experience. This is not recommended however, since it is usually more time-efficient to make money by other means and train with faster methods.

The following rates assume you are cleaning 5,000 herbs per hour.
